I had disseminated valley fever when I was 12 and about 22 years later I developed lone afib. I have had this off and on for the last 20 years when it suddenly developed into atrial flutter and tachycardia. I had a atrial flutter ablation which stopped the flutter and tachycardia but I still have afib about three times a week - the rate is slower and the afib doesn't last as long. I was just trying to figure out, why me and wondered if there could be a connection to my valley fever. It had spread throughout my body I missed all of 7th grade and part of 8th grade. In reading up onthis type of valley fever, it says it can cause heart inflammation. Anyone else have this relationship or info?
